Orchid on Film

black and white orchidLast year I gave an orchid to my aunt as a gift.  Before presenting to her I photographed it.  This picture was taken with some of the last of my Polaroid type 55 film.  I used my Graflex Speed Graphic with the stock 127mm lens.  Polaroid 55 was like no other film.  Now that it’s gone many people are trying to find some worthy substitute.  There is even a a small project to try create a new similar material.  Hopefully they will succeed.  I still have a little 55 left.  I better find a reason to use it soon.  Sadly, fine film is not like fine wine and does not improve with age.
